Biography

Music lovers around the world reveled in Josh Groban's voice, his pristine operatic baritone soaring on a number of hit albums that made dramatic orchestrations cool to listen to. The multiplatinum recording artist forever changed the musical landscape with his commanding voice that fused classical, pop, and rock-n-roll seamlessly, all of it coming out of this slight-in-build, unlikely-looking artist. Groban sold millions of records since he first burst onto the music scene in the early millennium, thanks to his boy-next-door looks that defied the conventional idea of the robust male opera singer and a voice that wrapped around ballads with an earnest yearning and sadness. Many of his albums like "Josh Groban" (2001), "Closer" (2003) and "Awake" (2006) all nabbed top spots on the Billboard pop and adult contemporary charts. He consistently played to sold-out crowds worldwide, making him an international superstar before he was even 30 years old. Groban's beautiful, angelic voice was his legacy, but it was a genuine, almost humble, connection to his audience that made him one of the world's most loved and influential singers of his generation.
